I’ve gotten a lot better with money lately. I’m not so much of a spendaholic now, though I’m still a shopaholic – I waste so many hours scrolling through ASOS or wandering around the shops. I have finally gotten more sensible with spending, and have always been pretty good at saving. I thought I’d share my tips on how to curb your spending and good ways to save for the future without feeling like you’ll have less money in the present day.
1. The 52-Week Money Challenge.
I’m not sure who came up with this but it’s genius. The difficulty with saving is that, in order to save lots of money quickly, you have to affect your main bank balance quite drastically. With the 52-Week Money Challenge, you put £1 in the first week, then £2 the second, making £3. Then you put £3 in the next week, making £6. You go up week by week, and by the 52nd week of the year you’ve saved £1378!
